L: Gives a cloudy light orange color. A big top of head that disolve very slow. Good lacings on the glass.

S: yeast, fruits like banana and citrus,spices especially cloves

T&F: starts of with a fruity sweetness, wheat,banana and some small citric notes. In the middle the spices get more dominant and cloves are very noticable.it finish of dry with a small bitterness in the aftertaste. The aftertaste disappear quite fast and sense a little to watery flavour in the end.the mouthfeel are crisp.

O: a good and decent beer but lacks a little flavour to be a topshelf weisbier.easy to drink but a little anonymous.

This brew pours a cloudy orange with a fluffy white head, some of which sticks around until the end, lots of lacing and more carbonation than one would expect from a Hefeweizen.
The smell is funky and wheaty with some orange and bananas.
The taste is full of sweet wheat with a bit of a citric acid bite. The orange and banana taste dominate with the finish being slightly dry and giving you a second dose of citric acid bite.
Overall this is a simple, easy to drink Hefeweizen which, according to the label, follows the Reinheitsgebot.

This beer pours murky golden in color. It has a solid, thick head to it. You see carbination looking at the beer. The nose is a beautiful wheat smell. The taste is very wheaty, and it feels good going down. A very good weiss.

Served cool from 500ml bottle into Weizen glass.

L) Light yellow-orange colour, cloudy, stable dense bright white head. Looks good, if a little pale.

S) Nicely robust clove / ester odour, nothing complicated here, bring on the hefe.

T) Fairly light, citrusy clovey taste. In the lighter half of the hefeweizen spectrum. There is light clove and orange in there.

F) Light and easy drinking, no nasty aftertastes or bitterness. Carbonation is fairly light for a hefeweizen; doesn't have the acidic bite from the fizz. Spot on.

O) Light tasting hefeweizen, this is subtle and high quality. Recommended to weizen aficionados.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Pours a hazy gold with a foamy off-white head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of wheat, yeast, spice, and slight caramel aromas. Taste is much the same with toast, banana, caramel, spice, and yeast flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is an above average beer that is drinkable, but nothing stands out about this one to me.

Serving type: bottle.
